about

A Minor Forest are from San Francisco and began playing as such in 1993. Erik Hoversten plays guitar, guitorgan, omnichord and sings. John Benson plays bass and triggers all the tape loops. Andee Connors plays drums, a little guitar and is prone to the occasional spat of yelling. They were joined for this record by Dominique Davison who plays the cello and often joins them live.

Their first release was the "Lem Monkey" EP on Karate Brand Records. Subsequently they have released several 7inches, a 10inch and a few 12inch singles on various labels. Flemish Altruism is their debut record and was recorded in Chicago by Steve Albini and Bob Weston. A Minor Forest's music is filled with elements of classical compositional structure. Their songs are augmented with improvisation. Flemish Altruism moves effortlessly from the dissonant melancholia to reckless abandon with the precision of a finely tuned machine. Not for the weak of heart.
